Exhibition 22 - 30 October
in Corsham Town Hall
The story of the women who manned an improvised hospital in Corsham to care for soldiers who had been wounded, often severely, is seldom recalled in detail.
There are numerous Box women who served in the hospital, travelling daily to do their bit for the war effort. You can find out about the ancestors of well-known Box village residents.
The record of their experiences is challenging and heroic. Newspaper reports and nurses' diaries explain their daily duties.The main hall of Corsham Town Hall has been reconstruced as a hospital ward to let you see first-hand.
Free entry and daily admission from 9.30am. All are welcome.
